[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small butterfly was at the campus of a college here in town. There, I usually try to shoot hummingbirds, but once in a while the butterflies come around.

Its size is approximately 2 centimeters. I rotated the picture 45 degrees anticlockwise, in order to get a more pleasant composition.

On PhotoShop 7.0, unsharp mask, levels, contrast and saturation.

ISO: 50.

Great shot Livio!
The buuterfly is sharp and good, just too bad that the flower is a bit hot there but the picture is great after all!

Hi Livio, it certainly does look related to our Blues. Lovely shot, lots of detail and I like the lighting. Very well done.

Hi Livio
Excellent macro, the details and the DOF are great. I also like the POV and the light.
Yes, I agree about the hot spots, the flower under the butterfly is burn but it's still a great picture.
It is very hard to catch those tiny butterflies, excellent work.

Very good macro with very good details, the composition is great and the bokeh is excellent.

Oi como vai?
linda foto ,Dias atrás eu fotografei uma borboleta desta ..foto bem parecida por sinal...e na mesma flor...LANTANA CAMARA..tbm conhecida como cambará.

Excellent macro Livio with good focus on both flowers and butterfly's. Well done

Livio, Very good sharpness & detail considering the the small size of this subject. Great colors, light & composition...Well done!

Livio, another beautiful capture of a butterfly. You captured the front most flower well and the DOF was lost abit on the butterfly. The overall image is well composed and the colors are great. The background suits the image well.
Well done on this capture.

IMO, sure would help to know what kind of butterfly it is we are viewing. :)

Wonderful details! Great compostion and bright colors. It's almost surreal. Well done Livio.

It's a beauty, Livios. The details shows nocely and a nice OOF BG. I agree the crop might be a bit tight. Great shot!

Very good macro Livio.
It's looks like our blue one's.
Very good colours, details and compostion, but IMO it's little to tight.
Great work.

Personal assessment of the photo: a more than excellent picture.
Aptness of the photo for the site: great
Personal assessment: difficulty for the photographer during the capture: I can tell
Personal assessment of the note: good: no name for the butterfly
Livio: I test at present a new and personal way of writing my critics and you are among the first ones to whom I send it.
Any comment will largely be appreciated.
This is a very artistic picture.

Wow, this one is really excellent, what a composition, well composed, Livo !
